NAKIVO, the leading backup and disaster recovery solution provider, delivers agent-based backup support for Proxmox virtual machine data to cater to the different needs of its diverse customer base.

“More businesses are turning to Proxmox VE as a free and open-source alternative to traditional virtualisation platforms,” says Bruce Talley, CEO of NAKIVO. “In fact, adding support for Proxmox VE has been a top request from our customers, and we’re proud to deliver. This move expands NAKIVO’s already extensive platform support and caters to the demand for flexible data protection options in the open-source virtualisation space.”

This integration not only provides a way to back up and restore data, applications and operating systems of Proxmox VMs but also exemplifies NAKIVO’s commitment to platform-agnostic data protection.
